PIXEL MAGIC BRINGS INSTANT ACCESS TO HIGH-DEF VIDEO AND AUDIO WITH NEW "HD MEDIABOX"
RIDGEFIELD, NJ (April 20, 2006) - Pixel Magic Systems, developer of the world's first Linux -based video processor, has introduced its new HD MediaBox™. The powerful high -definition media player delivers instant network centralized HD media storage, management, and access for high -definition video, digital photos, digital audio and DVD files from one box, no matter where the files are stored.
The small -footprint MediaBox™ (4.1" x 9" with stand) lets users add up to a 500GB SATA hard drive allowing users to access files stored locally in the MediaBox™, as well as from a personal computer; from a USB hard disk drive; or from any network -attached storage box.
The HD MediaBox™ supports output resolutions of up to 1080p, so all HD media regardless of native resolution can be played properly on any display. Any VGA, component video, DVI or HDMI -equipped display device can be used, from flat panel displays to projectors to HDTVs.
"To get so much capability in a unit this size is impressive," says Gary Plavin, representing Pixel Magic Systems in North America. "You get all the digital optical, coax, and analog connectors needed to deliver high -fidelity audio and video for any home theater or stereo system."
Two Models, for Video and Advanced Audio
For movies, TV programs, camcorder footage and more, the standard HD MediaBox™ MB100 supports the most popular formats: MPEG 1/2/4, WMV9, DivX™ and XviD, as well as DVD, .ISO and .VOB files. By outputting everything through the digital HDMI™ connection, the user can go digital all the way to the display system.
The HD MediaBox™ MB200 Audiophile Edition adds a low -jitter temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) to dramatically improve spaciousness, clarity, impact and purity. The HD MediaBox™ can now be the center of a user's hifi as a high -end CD jukebox storing thousands of CDs.
Plavin points out, "With an unprecedented retail price of $599.00, the HD MediaBox™ allows everyone to have a centralized media server and HD video system in their home."
